About Fire Emblem: Blazing Blade Cipher Crits

What is this project?

This is a casting call to dub original critical quotes for the Game Boy Advance game Fire Emblem Blazing Blade (simply known as Fire Emblem when it made its debut in the west).
The quotes will be presented in a compilation format along with game footage and portrait cut-ins from the Fire Emblem Cipher series. The finished product will look and be presented in a similar way to how crit quotes are done in the 3DS game Fire Emblem Awakening. The final product will be uploaded to YouTube.

As long as we don't require you to redo your lines for whatever reason (wrong intonation, mispronouncing something, etc) you will not be required to record any additional lines besides your audition. If you do need to re-record your lines however, we will give you one week to do so. Should something urgent arise that prevents you from recording we are willing to give you additional time though. The only exception for this is the three characters listed as "lead" (Eliwood, Hector, and Lyndis) and Nergal. As they are the three main characters of Blazing Blade, we intend to end the video with their final battle dialogue versus Nergal, the main antagonist. They will also be given an additional set of crit lines.

Once casting is complete I will send you an invite to a discord server, but it is not obligatory to join. On discord I will post updates throughout the editing process and people will be able to leave direct feedback and influence the final product. We may also discuss additional "comical" crit lines that will play after the main segment of the video has ended.

If you're a fan of Blazing Blade you might have noticed that the role list doesn't include all playable characters. Since we are using official cipher art for the cut-ins only the characters with cipher art are included in this project (with the exception of Nergal who is included but doesn't have crit quotes).

Do you like Fire Emblem but are not a fan of Blazing Blade? Don't worry! We are already planning similar projects for the two other GBA Fire Emblem games Binding Blade and Sacred Stones, so stay tuned for that!

  1. Guidelines for auditioning:
  2. Please keep in mind that some character descriptions and lines contain spoilers!

1. You don't need to have a super expensive microphone, but your audio obviously needs to sound good. With this we mean no puffing and minimal to no background noise. We don't want any distortion or echo on your voice either. This can be achieved with most mics as long as you have a good set-up. If you struggle with any of these things we recommend recording in a small room with doors and windows closed and angling your microphone while speaking.

2. Read your lines with emotion. Since these are crit lines, most are meant to be said in a smug, condescending way and/or even shouted.

3. You may audition for as many characters as you'd like! We might also cast you as multiple characters as long as your voices for them sound different enough. UPDATE: With the current amount of auditions we're now aiming to cast one voice actor per role, but you may still audition for as many characters as you'd like!

4. Since the lines are so short we highly recommend you to do multiple takes of the same line. If you use a variety of intonations and emotions it increases the chance of us hearing something we like! 

5. While my co-director and I won't self cast, we might audition for this project just like everyone else. This does not mean we will automatically cast those characters to ourselves. We will ask others with knowledge of the characters and franchise for feedback before casting anyone.

6. No role will be cast before the deadline. If for some reason the deadline were to be extended, this rule will apply to the original deadline.

7. We highly recommend that you read the character descriptions carefully before auditioning to get an idea of what we're looking for!

9. If you have any questions, just ask! We'll be happy to answer them. You can contact me or my co-director FishyFried here on CCC or on Discord (Eecaruz#3680 & FishyFried#3078).

10. If you want feedback on your auditions, please contact either of us on discord!
